How Agrace is Keeping Patients, Families and Staff Safe, Related to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
We are taking several steps to protect our patients, their families and our staff, volunteers and visitors in the wake of the local concern over COVID-19. Based on guidance from the CDC and CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services), we are screening patients and families before each home visit. We are also screening all visitors before they are permitted to enter our inpatient units, and the number of visitors per patient may be limited. If you have any questions before visiting Agrace, please call (800) 553-4289.
We will review and adapt our actions as needed over the coming days and weeks. Please know that we are taking appropriate steps to prevent the spread of illness while also pursuing our mission of compassionate care.
We invite you to volunteer and make new friends at our three (soon to be four!) clean, bright thrift stores.
Agrace operates three thrift store locations—two in in Madison and one in Janesville—that resell quality donated clothing, furniture and home goods and housewares. In October 2019, the Agrace Thrift Home Store will open on Stoughton Road in Madison, and focusing furniture and home décor. We also offer a donation transportation service in Dane County.
Volunteers make up the majority of the stores’ staff and are essential to our success! You can feel great about volunteering with us, because the proceeds of Agrace Thrift Store sales are used to support vital Agrace HospiceCare services, such as grief support for the community, respite care specialized staff training, and care for patients who have no other way to pay for hospice or palliative care.
